    Never thought I'd be updating this again. Well every since I put this up, 
    I get asked by people a few times a week how to get to Mimir's Well so I 
    figured I should probably throw that bit of info into this guide. I also 
    fixed it up a bit to make it look all nice and pretty ^_^. Also realized 
    that I put the wrong e-mail address at the top of the document... There 
    still may be a future for this guide, but that would only be if I ever 
    find the time to beat the game again. So that's all for now folks!

    All done! This little In-depth FAQ is likely in its final form. It will 
    only be changed if I decide to do a major change to it i.e. turning it 
    into a complete puzzle guide instead of just one of Mimir's Well.

    What is this little piece of junk? That's what you are probably thinking 
    right now, huh? Well I'll tell you. Right now this guide is designed to 
    help you through those three annoying block puzzles in Mimir's Well. At 
    first I was just putting these together to help someone who was stuck on 
    the boards, but then I figured I might as well type them up all nice and 
    neat for everyone to enjoy.
    
    There might be a future for this guide, but at this moment I can not say 
    for sure. My plan is to eventually turn this little thing into a complete 
    puzzle guide covering every single puzzle in Wild Arms 3 big and small. 
    Will it happen? At this moment, only time will tell...

    What is Mimir's Well? How can I get there? I want these super-fantastic 
    prizes! If that's how you are feeling right now, then make sure you read 
    this section.

    Mimir's Well is not as much of a dungeon as it is a... Well I'm not exactly 
    sure how to explain it. It is a small place that you must go to for a few 
    mandatory events, but you can return to for a few chests and a secret boss.
    
     ____________________
    :How can I get there?:
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    First things first, you have to make sure you are far enough along in the 
    game to reach Mimir's Well. The dungeon just before you head over to 
    Mimir's Well is the Demondor Pillar-Rear in Chapter 4. If you are past 
    that and still need help locating Mimir's well then read on. When you 
    finished the Demondor Pillar-Rear you should see a scene involving 
    Virginia's father and a white flower (sorry I don't really remember any 
    details, been a few months since I last played Wild Arms 3). After the 
    scene, head back over to Boot Hill.
    
    Walk up to the graveyard in town and you should notice a white flower on 
    one of the graves. Examine it and you will find a letter that talks about, 
    and gives the location of, Mimir's Well. Now that you know where Mimir's 
    Well is, time to go find it. Warp over to Gunner's Heaven (if you have the 
    Teleport Orb that it). Mimir's Well is to the north. Just keep an eye on 
    your map for the co-ordinates. Once inside there will be a long scene that 
    I remember nothing about. I am pretty sure you are back in Boot Hill after 
    the scene. When you can, warp over to Mimir's Well and go back inside.

    :What's inside?:
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    There are nine chests in Mimir's Well (four from the block puzzles and five 
    just sitting around) and the secret boss Lolithia. Since this is such a 
    straight forward 'dungeon', I won't bother explaining the locations of the 
    chests. Oh yeah, the password to the door is 'TOMORROW'. To fight Lolithia, 
    input the password 'emeth' into the console in the final room. If I 
    remember correctly that will trigger the boss battle.

    Confused when looking at my big scary squares? Here is where you come for 
    help. I will explain everything you need to know to solve these puzzles 
    using my squares of wonderment.

    First notice the letters and numbers around the grid. These are what you 
    use to find the location of each of the co-ordinates below the grid. Each 
    square filled with X's represents the starting positions of each of the 
    blocks. The letter number combos below the grid represent squares on the 
    grid and where to push each block. For example, step one says to move the 
    block that is located in square B2 to square A4. Understand? One last 
    thing about the grids. See the squares that are not sealed between each 
    other (D4 and E4)? Those represent the raised platforms scattered across 
    some of the puzzles that you have to work around.
